Open Show Oct 2016

Southern Counties Staffordshire Bull Terrier Society 

20 Class Open Show 

30th October 2016 



















First off I should thank the SCSBTS for giving me the opportunity to judge the open show 30/10/2016. A special thanks to my 2 stewards Mick Clarke and Lee Page for keeping things running smoothly. 

There was a good quality of breed type in most classes that I found most pleasing. I was happy to see mouths and feet on the whole were excellent and I didn’t see one high tail set, small things I know but small things can sometimes spoil a picture. I would like to add an old judges saying that I read somewhere that I quite like! (I never came to please anyone I came to please myself and I did). 

Once again thank you SCSBTS for making me and my wife extremely welcome from the moment we arrived until the time we left, all in all I had a fantastic day.
